This is my latest box design made from rosewood and maple that a buddy gave me and black leather .
The design is based on the 1832 design which I recently posted but is enhanced with the raised leather panels and the beautiful rosewood but by changing the lid design and adding the leather panels I was able to archive a totally different look .
The hinges are solid brass and the tray and top and bottom liners are a deep brown velvet cloth sown to backing material .
The size is 13” x7” x4 1/2” and its finished with bees wax and oil mixture to a low sheen .
It was a real pleasure working with the rosewood even so the board had a lot of stress and was just over 1/2” thick and just enough to complete this box .
The front ,back and side panels where made using my pyramid cutting jig .
and of course the box clamping jig did it’s thing giving me a perfectly rectangular box. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/120593
I think my buddy that gave me the wood will be pleased when I present the box to him .
I hope you enjoy and let me know what you think of this design .
